These cookies are best eaten when still warm and filled with melting whipped cream. (Snaps rarely contain brandy any more.)

- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup Lyle’s Golden Syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine flour and ginger with a whisk. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar and golden syrup; cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; stir in flour mixture.
Using a 2/3-ounce ice cream scoop, drop three level scoops of batter onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until flat and golden brown, about 10 minutes, rotating halfway through.
Remove from oven and let cookies cool just slightly until firm, about 2 minutes; place each cookie over an inverted drinking glass or wrap around the handle of a whisk, using your hands to press and gently shape. Let set 30 seconds. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat process with remaining batter.
